Our Wet “Sunrise”Morning!

The Dedicated Social Photographers! 13 of us got out of bed believing the sun would shine. Unfortunately, it was not to be. (Unless you believe one of the photos submitted by Ian English.) Most of the girls were happy to get out and take some photos while the guys watched and waited for eggs and bacon to be cooked.

We had a lot of fun regardless of what the weather decided to dish out.

A big thanks to Ian Nunn for allowing us to create havoc in his kitchen and to Glenn and Betty for providing our lovely big eggs.
